Brandon Nimmo, who tied the game with an RBI single in the eighth, doubled in a run to increase the lead. Mark Vientos followed with an RBI single before Pete Alonso capped the scoring with his 18th home run of the season.

Francisco Lindor put New York on the board in the sixth with his 14th long ball.

Sean Manaea tossed seven strong frames, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits while walking two and striking out five. Jose Buttó tossed two scoreless, and Dedniel Núñez closed it out.
